After last week’s first specimen spur of the season, things have kicked on a bit, and it’s fair to say that the spurdog season is in full flow for Wicklow Boat Charters.

In recent days, another four specimens were landed, falling to Clyde McElwaine (2), Bert McGregor and Brian Cooke, none of them strangers to specimen fish.

But there are plenty of smaller fish around, too, with circa 30 coming to the boat on the day, with plenty of them over the metre mark.
